That's ok, thanks for looking! By luck, one was listed on ebay on Sunday for £15 inc postage BIN, so jumped on it! Luckily its not faded! I think someone else has one that are sending me, which is handy as I have an animal cyclone assembly with a broken handle, so can keep it as a spare.
I considered a silver top, but thought it would look odd. So I kept to lavendar. I have a DC04 Absolute+ with a grey chassis rather than purple, am going to refurb that and use it as a test. If it sells with no issues then in future I'll just put grey parts on, if the majority of people dont care/notice that its not as it should be.
Sometimes my OCD gets in the way of profit! Would have been cheaper to put a grey top on!
